Mepilex Border Sacrum is an all-in-one foam dressing that effectively absorbs and retains wound fluid (exudate) but keeps the wound sufficiently moist.
The dressing is a version of Mepilex Border that is specifically shaped to fit the sacral area. The unique and patented Safetac® adhesive makes sure that your dressing can be changed without damaging your wound or skin around it. This makes the dressing change as pain free as possible and also makes sure that the skin around your wound stays dry and healthy. If you want to learn more about Safetac click here.
